Happy World Cardmaking Day!

                                    
                                                  
Not exactly a card but close enough.  I love the colors from the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge #27 this week! (OTWC#27) Aqua, cream and brown are some of my favorite colors.  May Arts Ribbon is sponsoring the challenge this week!   



One of my favorite paper packs is Dill Blossom by SEI and I knew it would be perfect for this challenge.  This paper pack has a beautiful linen finish...love it!  The notebook is also cream and brown so I added a strip of the paper to match it up as well.  I tied everything up with a length of gorgeous May Arts brown satin ribbon .  I can't decide whether or not to leave the ribbon/button on the pen.  What do you think?

Challenges:  the first SEI link party (How cool is that!?)
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes (they're also looking for some new DT members.  If you're interested, the info is at this link as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by...I appreciate your comments a bunch!

Hi! I love the set you made. I think you should leave the button and ribbon on the pen. I think it dresses it up beautifully.
Have a great weekend. Carol

I love that SEI line, too. I woudn't change a thing about this project, it's perfect as is. Did you add a strip of pp to the top of each note paper or just the first one?

What a great notepad. It would make the perfect stocking stuffer of Chrismas. I vote to leave the ribbon on the pen, I think it makes it look classy!
